New partnership with Capella University provides $6,000 scholarships for structured degree program for eligible nurses; connectRN offers additional financial support for tuition
WALTHAM, Mass. — May 6, 2020 — connectRN, provider of the nurse-centric mobile staffing solution for per diem health care, is adding new benefits for its dedicated community of nurses and other clinicians. The company is partnering with Capella University to provide online, flexible degree programs with scholarships and discounts, while offering additional financial support. To thank nurses and other clinicians for their dedication during the COVID-19 pandemic, the company has implemented a number of initiatives, including free meals for every clinician currently working on the platform, personal gifts of appreciation, an up-to-date list of resources, and more.
“Nurses play one of the most critical roles in our healthcare system, serving as the primary caregivers in hospitals and long term care settings,” said Matt Levesque, CEO of connectRN. “The inefficiencies of standard staffing models have left many nurses on the sidelines, depriving the healthcare system of the skills and talents where and when they are needed most. At connectRN, we’re delivering nurses with a better way to work by implementing a new model in staffing and a higher standard for recognizing and engaging essential care providers.”
With its easy to use app, connectRN is helping recent graduates, retired nurses, and those furloughed to immediately join the frontlines during the COVID-19 crisis. connectRN offers numerous benefits, including competitive pay and bonuses, training and education, loyalty programs, private online communities and mentoring programs, discounts, and more.
The Capella University agreement offers connectRN clinicians $6,000 scholarships for Capella’s structured degree program or 50% off the first session of their flexible learning format. Additional financial support that offers up to $2,500 in scholarship and tuition reimbursement is also available for all members. connectRN clinicians looking to advance their licenses or training or for more information on connectRN’s educational benefits, visit: www.capella.com/connectrn
